Gardening Tips from Greentree Landscapes, Calgary

The Landscaping Season is Almost Here!

It’s been such a mild winter here in Calgary that we’re all wondering what Spring will bring.

After a couple of very short gardening seasons we’re hoping for a nice early Spring and a long growing season – we’re about due!

Tips For Getting Your Yard Ready for Spring

If you want to take advantage of these beautiful warm days we’re getting, here are a few jobs you can start doing already:

  • Clean up the yard by tidying away fallen leaves and other garden waste that has accumulated over the winter
  • Now is a pretty good time to prune, but make sure you don’t prune early flowering shrubs such as lilacs or you’ll remove the flower buds, and avoid pruning elms, birch, maples or dogwoods because it will cause excessive sap flow.
  • Stain decks and fences – but make sure you pick a day when it’s going to stay mild  and dry overnight.

If you’re planning anything new, this is definitely the time for getting your landscape design in place.  That way you’re in a great position to get your landscaping done in time to enjoy our beautiful Calgary summer weather.  And, remember, if we design and build your landscaping, the design fee is subtracted from the price.
